Postby Scoop1261 » Tue Aug 22, 2017 5:58 pm

The Western Australian Rocketry Society INC. cordially extends an invitation to WARS & AMRS members and their invited guests to attend the range located at Grass Valley 75kms east of Perth, on Sunday the 27th August for one of our regular club launches for the 2017 season.

Facilities will be available onsite for AMRS members wishing to attempt L1, L2 & L3 certifications.

The range will open for operation at 09:30 and will continue through to 17:00. Any assistance with range setup is appreciated.

We will be watching the weather carefully for Sunday's planned launch.
The BOM is predicting winds from 22km/h -23km/h so the launch may be cancelled if the forecast does not improve.

A NOTAM has been lodged in any case, check back for updates.
